The Quay Uses Association was founded in 1959 to ascertain ownership of the rights over the Quay and the use of the slipway
In November 2010 the Association purchased the land known as Golant Pill together with the main slip and Quay from Cornwall Council and formed Golant Quay Users Ltd to officially own it. There are currently 10 committee members, the Chair is Peter Edwards and Treasurer is Stuart Young.
The Pill is very tidal, and very muddy, and is mostly used for winter storage. It is not suitable for regular access to the Fowey Estuary and there is also a low railway bridge to negotiate when care is needed on a rising tide.
Membership numbers average between 145 and 150 and each has an allocated berth for their boat. Anyone wishing to become a member should contact Peter on 01726 833141 or firstname.lastname@example.org Membership and mooring fees run from 1 September to 31 August each year. There is a £10 joining fee for all NEW members.
